Here's Webster's definition of "Jew":
        
        1:b) Israelite

Here's what the DICTIONARY REQUIRES for "adultery":

    voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man
    and someone other than his wife or between a married
    woman and someone other than her husband; 


<that one species TRANSITION into
<***another*** species "by hereditary transmission of slight variations in

Here's an intellectual challenge for you to get around, from Webster's:

Einstein:

    Albert 1879-1955 American (German-born) physicist; enunciated theory
    of relativity; discovered equivalence of mass and energy (E=mc2), etc.;
    awarded 1921 Nobel prize for physics for contributing to theoretical
    physics and his photoelectric law


<Unless you claim that "evolution" caused EACH species to "evolve" into
<precisely the same form originally that EACH species is in now, then you
<MUST claim that one species "evolved" into another species.  The first
<option is called "creation", which leaves you with only ONE other option,
<which is "speciation".

<There is nothing else.

Yo, lojbab!  Would you be so kind as to do your magic thing again,
and explain to me what the fuck John's on about?  I think all
those extra brain cells are cutting off the circulation to
his Wernicke's -- he's babbling again.

Thanks in advance.
